Stupid evolution

I read a comment today on metafilter that Intelligent Design and (populist) Evolutionary Psychology are really two sides of the same coin. I think so too. I post about rubbish pseudo-evolutionary crap more because it annoys me more.

The London School of Economics seems to be particularly shameful these days. A few weeks ago there was that complete idiot arguing that 'evolution' meant that in the future women would have larger breasts and more glossy hair, and the underclass would be shrivelled and deformed.

Now this other nutter at the LSC has argued that people are starving in Africa because - and I'm sorry this is so offensive - black African people have evolved with abnormally low intelligence.
